I become suspicious when people are more accommodating than usual, i.e food trucks, getting a large pile of lunch tickets, all of my ideas being implemented in a very short period of time (without getting credit, naturally) and finally getting the job title I worked for over 2 and a half years ago. (that I had given up on a long time ago)
These are all red flags.
Without actually hearing something to the effect of “we’re sorry and we’ll stop harassing you and retaliating against you,” will I ever trust your kindness as being genuine.
I hope this is helpful, you shouldn’t be wasting your energy if you’re being insincere. It’s draining to everyone involved.
Thanks for reading.
